Most are guilty of drink and driving. Even if it was a drink a sip or a half bottle. The issue is by now we should all know and have the common sense of responsibility to arrive alive and take a cab or have a designated driver. Lots of us think that it will never happen, I'm a good driver, I'll drive slow its down a back road. Well here is a story about how it could happen to you and it dosnt always have to be you doing the crashing.
Drinking and Driving
Nothing beats an ice cold beer after a long days work. Many of us drink because we like the taste others do because they like to have a good time. But it's not all fun and games when you put the bottle behind the wheel.
I remember it like it was yesterday. Driving in my very own car, I was able to go wherever I wanted whenever I wanted within limits of my gas gauge of course. I often drank with my friends a lot of the time just inside close to home within walking distance. We would usually just sit around listen to music and play video games talking and reminiscing.
But every so often when we hear about a good party we would go of course that meant sometimes I would be driving which never stopped me. I knew it was to drink and drive but I thought to myself I'll be fine.
Many parties have gone by in my time and I always made it home safe. Until one night. One unforgettable night we headed out to this party way out in the country probably about an hour drive. We made our way there fine driving on the highway. I was a little under the influence but it never stopped me. Once we arrived to the dirt road leading to the party when started heading down it slowly and carefully music was playing and we were ready for the night coming to a big hill I seen the lights of another driver I stopped and flashed my head beams to capture there attention. Now this person was driving way to fast, as soon as he saw my headlights he slammed on his breaks, skidded back side to side while making his way down the hill in the dirt road and slammed into the side of my car on my drivers side door. Luckily I was alright and so were all my passengers. He was also okay devastated and shocked at what just happened. I ended up losing my car that night due to confidential reasons. I wanna just say that ever since than my perspective on drinking and driving never be the same. It only takes a couple drinks and a couple seconds. Even if it's not you. It could be someone else.
